enhancing samba-tool tests questions

I'm trying to get my head wrapped around any automated testing for 
samba-tool. After poking around the tree a bit, and getting some 
pointers from Theresa, I'm now assuming the tests, as they exist, are 
the ones that live source4/utils/tests/test_samba_tool.sh which are 
invoked by "make test TESTS=samba4.blackbox.samba_tool"

Are there any others I should be looking at?

The test_samba_tool.sh is very basic, just having the time command. 
Enhancing that seems like it would be useful.

Also, with the test scripts, is there any reason these could not be done 
in python as long as they comply to the same test program output?
